My uncle Jim is known for his killer BBQ ribs, but recently, after taking a couples cooking course with my aunt, he came home with a delicious, absolutely amazingly simple recipe for chicken! With corn on the cob, fresh fruity salad, and hungry appetites, we sat down and dug in. I was actually blown away by the flavor--and even more impressed by the simplicity and, at the same time, elegance of the recipe.
Here's how to make it:
- 5 Organic Sage Leaves, chopped finely
- handful of fresh thyme leaves
- juice of 3 limes
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- Olive oil to drizzle
Cut a whole chicken down the middle. Place open-side down with skin exposed in a deep oven-safe dish. Drizzle a liberal amount of olive oil and with your hands, make sure oil is evenly distributed on chicken. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly on skin. Add your thyme, sage, garlic. Add your lime juice to pan. Place in oven at 425 degrees F. Remove from oven when center is no longer pink (approx 40 minutes).
Pour drippings (Your AU JUS) from chicken into oven-safe dish and keep warm until serving.
Voila! Au Jus!
Flavor doesn't have to be compromised when you want to make a healthy, mouth watering dish! YUM.
Bon appetit et bonne sante!
